This holiday season, bring the family to a show with a twist on a heartwarming classic as A Wishing Star Stage Company Production and the Palace Theatre present It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. This inventive interpretation of Frank Capra’s classic film brings the ever-timely story of disaster, redemption and holiday magic to life on stage.
It is December 24, 1946 and a small group of actors have gathered in Studio A of WFTX Radio for a live broadcast, ready to take on dozens of characters and recreate Bedford Falls with live foley sound effects and virtuosic, high-energy performances to bring It’s a Wonderful Life live to the listening audience.
The ensemble re-enacts the story of George Bailey, a young man whose dreams of traveling the world are thwarted by his sense of responsibility to the family business. Down on his luck, Bailey, compassionate yet disheartened, is at the end of his rope. His troubles seem to know no end and eventually lead him to wish he’d never been born. The response to his wish is a visit from an angel, Clarence, who shows Bailey how different life for those he loves would be were it not for George’s contributions. Bailey comes to realize his positive impact on the world, the countless lives he has touched and just how blessed he has truly been.
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play has become a holiday tradition at many theaters across the country – one that audiences embrace enthusiastically as they’re swept up in the magic and whimsy of the tale.
All ticket sales are final.
